Employees: Let Them Do The Job

"Our work is the presentation of our capabilities."

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
18th century German writer

All employees should read and embrace this thought; however, if employers do not give them the latitude necessary to do their best work, they will know it and will perform accordingly.


  1. This is absolutely right on. I am convinced that industry could almost overnight increase productivity by 20% if they would just listen better to what their workforce has to say.

  2. I don't know about 20% but I agree in general. As long as the effort to learn what they think is much more than a suggestion box.

  3. It never is, at least not where I've worked.
